It’s not every day that a product stands apart from all others, so when something hits the scene, it pays to know what’s going on. Such is the case with Urwahn and their seat tube-less Street Hawk, a cycling platform filled with tons of tech and R&D.
Folks, Urwahn is one of those crews that you can identify simply by seeing their products. Why? Because there’s no other team on the market that can build a bike quite like theirs. I mean it; even big-name brands don’t have the brass to do what this team has successfully achieved.
Sure, there have been one or two names that build a similar frame, but not quite the same. This includes Urtopia , a team that hasn’t had much movement in recent times, and F1’s Fernando Alonso with his Kimoa e-bike.
